GOG Connect is back and it brings with it the chance to redeem Torchlight II if you have it on Steam.

I did ask about the status of getting the Linux build of the original Torchlight onto GOG, they replied, but they couldn't give me an answer on it. Still, a DRM free copy of Torchlight (if the Linux build eventually comes to GOG) & Torchlight II from GOG is a pretty sweet deal.

You've got two days left to redeem them according to the page.

On top of that, if you own either title from Runic Games purchases directly, you can input your key here, to redeem it on GOG too.

If you don't own Torchlight II, GOG currently have it on sale with 75% off so that's a pretty slick deal for Linux gamers.

LumumbaSo one could buy it on steam, claim it from gog and then refund it on steam?
As the steam account needs to be linked to GOG for the system to work I reckon a refund on Steam would show up on GOG & you'd lose the game on there as well

Probably, but as GOG is DRM-free you only lose the ability to download it again, but you do have the copy you downloaded, and it will (still) work w/o issues....

Alm888Have them both on Humble. GOG is not needed.

I mean on Humble you get Steam keys so you can easily claim it on GOG too.

Well, the Steam key is not enough (I have tons of those...) - you also need a steam account.....

I mean on Humble you get Steam keys so you can easily claim it on GOG too, so why not? I think its a good idea to have a 'backup'.
And for that I have to register on Steam, which I will not do no matter what.
I have a better idea: my HDD is spacious enough.

SalvatosWhat is your proposed alternative?
Pay for it?
Talking about the term "piracy."
Ah misread it, just call it theft.
Then you have people who argue it's not theft because the people you "steal" digital files from still have them.

from GOG page: If a game is removed from your Steam account for any reason, such as through manual deletion or a refund – we reserve the right to remove the games from your GOG.com library.

True but theft & piracy has always been about stealing physical objects, digital files don't exist in the physical world so can't actually be stolen.
